These are a dying breed...

1994 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD
As I write this the 4.0L 6cyl has been retired and the new Wranglers now have a minivan motor.(sad day) As you can tell from the first sentence I love the old 4.0/6cyl. The 4.0 and 5spd manual is the most desirable stock engine/tranny combo if you are shopping for a Wrangler YJ from 91- 95. This is a reliable vehicle now with 133,000 on the clock all I have done is replaced a rusted/leak radiator and water pump. Jeeps do perform best with regular preventitive maintence. (plugs, wires, oil-changes in engine, diffs, transfer case & axles) The ride is rough which should be expected and learn to love it. If ride quality is your concern I would recommend going straight to a TJ (97- 06)or new JK
The option of unstoppable 4wd in the winter/off road and being Topless in the spring,summer & fall; Good heater; Durable and easy to clean interior; Simple dash layout; Small size makes turning around in the woods easy; 4.0L - 5spd AX15 transmission; Square headlights ;)
Frame and body can be prone to bad rust problems in salt belt states. Pull up the carpet and look at the floor on driver/passenger sides and around roll bars if thinking about purchasing. Check frame for rust as well. Poke around frame with a screwdriver to check for rotting due to rust;
